Events across South West London
South West London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust (SWLSTG) is leading on celebrations for World Mental Health Month on Saturday October 10 with a host of activities throughout the month of October.
This year's World Mental Health Day theme is dignity, and through our programme of events our aim is to challenge stigma and discrimination and raise awareness of mental health issues.
For up-to-date information on open days and other events - please see this timetable.
There are more than 40 events across our sites in south west London, including:
A digital photography competition - #upliftingimage – has also been launched, where local primary schools, staff and members of the public can send in an image that makes them smile or uplifts their mood.
Closing date for entries is October 10.More details are available here: What makes you smile.
David Bradley, Chief Executive at South West London and St. George's Mental Health NHS Trust, said: "We are proud to be celebrating World Mental Health Day with our series of events throughout October. We know that one in four of us will be affected by mental illness at some point in our life and that 9 out of 10 people say that their problems are made worse by experiencing stigma and discrimination.
"We are opening our Trust and services so that the local community can come along, meet us and find out what we do and how we help the local community.
"Come and join us on our open days and celebrate Mental Health Month this October."
